This Day in Death

9.7.12: Dorothy McGuire of the McGuire Sisters – DEAD!

And people said that sewing three women together and calling it a vocal act would never work. It’s a human centipede… of talent!

 

Dorothy McGuire of the McGuire Sisters, seen above in what I have to assume was a performance from Macbeth (that’s right, it’s an intelligent reference, crack a book sometime), is dead today from Parkinson’s disease and dementia. So I’m once again forced to learn about someone I’ve never heard of before. Which is hard for me, because I have the cognitive retention of a guinea pig. The doctors say it’s a medical marvel, “but not in the good kind of way.”

The McGuire Sisters were as well known for their matching outfits and hairdos as for their vocal harmonies, which helped them earn six gold records between 1952-68.

And they even talk in unison! At all times! It’s not creepy at all!
